Dandy Lion is a newly opened independent shop based in Holywood, Co. Down, (beside The Bay Tree Restaurant). Dandy Lion Holywood is a true destination shop; a treasure-trove of the unexpected. Formed by partners Jane and Guy, who met in Spain and recently came to live in Belfast, they have specialised in finding the weird, wonderful and downright unexpected, usually brought back from their travels throughout Europe, whilst meeting up with artists, designers, home owners and collectors to keep a steady supply of the unexpected for Dandy Lion.
Jane and Guy are both very exciting, individualistic and eclectic dealers offering the best quality incabinets of curiosities. Their business is driven by passion, an innate knowledge of the weird and wonderful and a fascination with mixing items from different periods which has already earned them a loyal client base of interior designers, prop hire companies and private clients. Being part of the local Holywood community is very much a part of their business, and have already been involved with local businesses and events.
We like to deal with trade and private clients alike and both hope our clients enjoy looking at our social media pages and the flow of stock we work very hard to find.
They both like nothing more than sharing the history of a piece, they tell us “detail, craft and patina fascinate us” and is evident in all of their stock in Dandy Lion. “Finding a good item and being able to find out who made it or which house it was made for is a real thrill.” New items in limited editions from interesting producers and artists also makes up part of the curated collection. Both love to focus on originality, good design and wherever possible completely untouched pieces. Finding inspiration from a variety of places, including; past Victorian splendour, antique curiosities, unique finds and even a magnificent tin horse!
